A family birthday.

My nephew, Ryne is 18 today.

I wanted to write a post about him today and as I looked through my pictures, it was difficult to find one of him without a guitar. He is an amazing musician (takes after his dad/my brother) and this instrument is always with him.

This young man has always held a special place in my heart. I love him to the sky! I'm emotional just typing this...

And then! I read my SIL's blog this morning and now I'm at a loss for words. She wrote a beautiful tribute to our Ryno-man -- a must read tribute from a mother to her son on his 18th birthday.
If you are so inclined, hop on over to her blog and leave her a little love today.
Happy Birthday, Ryno!!!
We ♥ you!!!

My nephew became a teenager in January, scary where the years have gone! A lovely tribute from his mum.

It's great that he has a serious interest in his life, to keep him focussed and help him relax.

Happy Birthday to Ryne!

Sounds like he's lucky to have such a great aunt and wonderful parents too!

I was balling my head off writing my post last week, I was sad all day afterward. Those kids sure get in our hearts don't they??

Speaking of love, the wonderful cream colored table you found at the Thrift Store recently is wonderful! I would leave it, it's SO charming!
